RE: Shipping Damage

I have been using a pelican case that we used to ship the black wedge ballot
stations in a few years back and it seems to be working well.  I wounder how
many of these cases are still on a shelve somewhere in McKinney.  At any
rate, how much would a pellical case cost?  $75, $95?  Check it out.

I have been asking for over 7 months for correct packing materials and
casing from Don V.  for the R5s.  I've spoken to you about it as well Ian.
The packaging for the AccuFeed units has been inadequate for years.  What
happened to the plans for new cases for the R5?
